Melbourne to Devonport race fleet becalmed in Bass Strait
If you learn to sail in dinghies as a child, you inevitably have some ingrained skills. One of those is being taught to sail in light breeze. The skill here is to be so gentle with your movements we talk about being like a cat, slinking like a cat, moving like a cat, light like a cat. This is exactly what is required by this Devonport fleet now in the middle of Bass Strait., as they wallow with little or no breeze.
